Check in was easy. Your usual protocol. The area was decent. I normally wouldn’t stay at a super 8 because they tend to have a bad reputation but we had no other options. Everything around the area was booked. It was surprisingly a good stay. The room looked just like the picture. It’s was clean, bed was comfortable, everything worked. Plenty of hot water in the shower. We didn’t have breakfast there so I can’t comment on that. It’s right off the highway. Starbucks and a few little places for food near by. I’m just being picky when I say the bed only has two pillows.

He put it online breakfast with clothing then doesn’t have breakfast what is the problem

Very nice staff. Clean. Good amenities. I didn’t like that I could hear the washer/dryer going all night

Well decorated, but its a very low quality motel. Beds were terrible and you could hear every car drive by the hotel (located right near the freeway) throughout the night.

Room was very clean and comfortable. The overall building did not look as clean and the area seemed a bit squelchy, but I mainly stayed in my room. Walking distance to downtown El Cajon and a mall. Fridge and microwave in room was nice

I booked 2 rooms for my family and me. My sister and me saw 2-3 cockroach in the bathroom. The lock of bathroom in my room could not lock, it was loosen. The room and bathroom is not dirty, just ok to stay 1-2 nights.

Read the reviews it was around 3 stars so I was skeptical. When I arrived the staff was very nice the room was a GREAT deal and I booked it an hour before. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap place to stay.

It was fine. Great staff, otherwise nothing too exciting

It's a little rough looking from the outside, But the staff was amazing Abdul in the front office went above and beyond to help with any and everything we needed . Plus he was super funny and made my experience smooth

Near freeway, homeless around motel, bed hard, check in clerk unpleasant.

Very pleasant staff. Plain but clean room. Very comfortable bed.

We enjoyed our overnight stay. The hotel has been upgraded recently. Nothing fancy but well worth the cost. The staff was efficient and helpful.

toilet didn't work. told desk but no one came to fix it. not enough coffee or towels.

I went with the positive reviews from Orbitz and it didn't disappoint!! Yeah it's a bit older looking on the outside but the staff was very helpful and the rooms are cleeeean!! I had to switch from a smoking to non-smoking due to my booking mistake and the front desk did with no ifs, ands, or buts. They let me check out the smoking room just in case, and it was super clean, even though you could obviously smell the smoke. Zero complaints. Would stay there again any time. Thank you Orbitz and Super 8!!! I've had nothing but great experiences booking through you!!

Not clean enough and the smell in a smoking room should have a better exhaust system

Pillows need to be replaced, basically comfortable room, just in a noisy area

Good price for the San Diego area. Only 20 minutes from the coast so a good alternative to higher priced locations on the water. Well lit, fenced in, and sufficient parking. Probably where will stay from now on when I go to San Diego for Deep Sea Fishing.

You get what you pay for. No pool. Beds were old and squeaky. Bed sheets had stains on them. A/C worked well enough.

Very clean room. Good conditions. Excellent continental breakfast.

We were pleased to host you at our hotel recently, thank you for choosing to stay with us. Unfortunately, cockroaches are an issue that most hotels have to deal with from time to time, despite a high level of cleanliness being maintained, and we are sorry that there were some present in your room. Please rest assured that they have been fully dealt with by our professional pest control partners. We were happy to host you on this occasion, and we hope to do so again if you are in this neighborhood again. We aim to provide you with a perfect stay when you stay with us again. Best Regards, Customer Care Team
